Getting There

From the intersection of Routes 89 and 12 (a few miles southeast of Panguitch, UT), turn east onto Route 12 and drive 3-4 miles to the signed visitor center on the north side of the road.

Pink Ledges & Hoodoo Trails

Go to the eastern end of the visitor center’s parking area and find the sign for Pink Ledges Trail. The trail heads west and goes 175 vertical feet up the northern wall of Red Canyon and then comes down to reach the junction with Hoodoo Trail. You could either turn east on Hoodoo Trail and go back to the visitor center or you could turn west and hike a short distance to the junction with Birdseye Trail.
